About this listing

This dog-friendly one-of-a-kind custom-built “Tiny House on Wheels” awes and inspires on the outskirts of a small business district, next to a field, some trees & 2 other tiny houses in their own unique space in the county…

The perfect place to create some memories & try something new!

Just 7 miles (straight shot) from downtown Huntsville…Concert goer, biz traveler, passing through, visiting friends/family, just needing a getaway… Or a local wanting something fun/different? Book today!

The TaHOW is a REAL tiny house! Setup to accommodate an infant and also a well-trained, well-behaved furry companion (ie, dog :). Just under 400sf (including the 100sf loft, otherwise its 300sf of floor space), but with 10′ ceilings, 2 exterior entrances & over 20 windows… you’ll be shocked how spacious it really feels! And how SMART the home is! (Plus a dog door to the small grassy yard; of course, do not ever plan to leave your dog unattended or alone in this property).

No Sacrifices!

This 40ft Tiny House on Wheels (400sf with loft) is packed with every functionality you could need for a short trip, whether 1 or 2 couples looking for a fun weekend to catch up and have some adult time (away from the kids), a business traveler needing fast WiFi and a dedicated work space (including an additional monitor and cat6 cable you plug directly into), a young family with an infant (pack n play with mattress & sheets provided, when requested at booking), or for a traveler and his dog looking for an accommodating rest from the road, this home has it all (we have traveled with our dog so we know how difficult it can be!).

Unfortunately, the home has steep stairs so please NO children for their own safety (an infant who stays in a parent’s arms or pack n play is no problem however on the main floor).

The home was built to live in originally, so there’s no skimping on amenities:

–Functional, well-thought out layout & spacious floor plan – feels so much larger than it is (with loft skylight, 10-ft ceilings & 20 windows)!

-Unique 2nd room at front of tiny house (details below) with live-edge corner L-desk, ethernet cable for hi-speed internet (or WiFi), and monitor if you need a 2nd screen to get some work done!

-SMART Tiny House – hands-free voice control the lights, ceiling fan, fireplace, mini-split temperature, music, TV, etc (phyiscal remotes & labeled switches also still there)

-Multi-functional components – stairs that are also drawers, a bootleggers hatch, side tables that convert to coffee tables, storage solutions, couches that turn into beds, closets where clothes or blankets can be accessed from multiple locations, an office that turns into a bedroom, 12v LED strip lighting in additional to 110v main electrical system; USB outlets throughout, including 3 phone chargers with USB-C, iOS lightning and micro-USB connectors to keep all your devices charged up

-Amazon Alexa & Gooogle Home voice control/assistant, and smart TVs (in living room & front room) with live & streaming video services Amazon Fire/Prime Video, YouTube TV (like cable but better, including local channels & 70+ more, movies & DVR), and access to NetFlix, HULU, HBO Max, Apple TV, etc

-51” HD LED Smart Samsung TV & home entertainment speaker system with surround sound and bluetooth allows you to watch tv from the loft, living room and/or kitchen and play music from your phone or mobile device or Sirius XM. Great for sporting events, movies or tv shows

The bedroom over the gooseneck in the front of the tiny house (8 ft x 8 ft roughly) has a 6-7 ft tall vaulted ceiling. It has a live-edge built-in L-shaped corner wood desktop with an office chair, extra monitor and 32” TV, Ethernet cable for hi-speed wired internet (in addition to WiFi), a perfect place to plug in your laptop and get some work done (with an elevated view on all 3 sides from 5 different windows). A full-size sofa bed / futon with 6” mattress (new addition!) in that room can be converted into a bed to sleep 2 additional people (linens stored in ottoman in that room, blanket in ottoman in living room). There is also a 2′ bar to hang clothes/clothes hangers on.

OTHER DETAILS:

The Tiny House on wheels has 10 ft tall ceilings in the main living room, 20+ windows, 2 entrances including a double-french door, a 6’3” tall kitchen as the main sleeping loft (queen size bed) over the kitchen which has a 4’ vaulted ceiling height. The loft is 10 feet long, 7.5 feet wide.

The wardrobe features a 6 ft long hanging clothes bar with lots of deep shelves, and 3 panels to access from the loft above (including additional storage in the stair-drawers and floor as well); 3 sets of additional pillows in closet with various different firmness.

Guests will have full exclusive access and use of tiny house, covered tiny decks/patios to rear and side of tiny house, and access to grassy space via rear stairs, including raised vegetable garden access, grassy area with fire pit and private parking. Space is lined on one side by trees; view of field on other side of tiny house and then parking in front of warehouse building at property entrance. The warehouse building is occupied and there may be other cars parked in front of the building during business hours.

The 2 other tiny houses may contain Airbnb guests as well who will share access to the garden and firepit area.

Parking – please park in front of the metal building at the entrance of the property on the concrete. Tiny house is just a short walk along the side of the warehouse onto the back of the property where the grass and trees and field are located and a small private courtyard/back yard.

*Got a Tesla or other electric vehicle? We have you covered! I have a 60amp outlet (up to 11kwh) you can charge your vehicle at no cost while staying at the tiny house, just send me a message ahead of time for instructions and access.

I will likely not be on-site during your stay; if you need to contact me for any reason, the airbnb app is the fastest, easiest and best way to reach out (I prioritize airbnb messages above all other communications). Enjoy your stay!

A straight shot down highway 72 to Huntsville 7 miles away, this easily accessible location is just outside Huntsville city limits. Located at the end of a cult-de-sac, between a residential patio home community and some light commercial space, the tiny house is hidden back next to the trees and forms a small tiny house village with 2 other tiny houses adjacent (same builder/ownership), a field in front of it and a grassy small yard on the other side & raised garden bed, with a 100 foot gravel driveway to it from the front concrete parking area of the property. These 3 tiny houses face the trees and create their own private, special space… yet if you need something or forgot something, Dollar General is open until 11pm just a 2-min walk up the street – very convenient!

Tons of lights all around, security cameras and motion sensors for your peace of mind in this quiet, peaceful area with free parking at the front side of the property (also monitored with motion-detecting security cameras for your peace of mind).

The TaHOW Tiny House is just east of Huntsville City Limits off Highway 72 – a straight shot to downtown Huntsville (2 stop lights)…

*8 miles / 12 min = VBC / Mars Music Hall / Downtown HSV
*9 miles / 13 min = Huntsville Hospital
*10 miles / 14 min = Campus No. 805 / Stove House (breweries, restaurants)
*11 miles / 12 min = UAH
*14 miles / 18 min = Bridge Street (open air mall, movie theater, dining, etc)
*15 miles / 19 min = NEW Orion Amphitheater / Mid City Complex (The Camp, Topgolf, Dave & Busters, much more…)
*17 miles / 20 min = Toyota Field (Rocket City Trash Panda’s – baseball)
*20 miles / 21 min = HSV International Airport

Huntsville, Alabama – also known as Rocket City for all the rocket scientists and engineers in town, as well as the Space & Rocket Center – is one of the fastest (if not the fastest) growing cities in Alabama, set to become the largest city in Alabama in just a few years. A very diverse city and economy, with lots of government contracting and military, including the new FBI building, large tech presence from Gooogle & Faceboook, a Mazda-Toyota plant, the future headquarters of the U.S. Space Force, Blue Origin rocket company, the large and ever exanding Huntsville Hospital system, UAH & Alabama A&M Universities, and so much more.

Huntsville is also the new home to the minor league baseball Trash Pandas, and Huntsville Havoc (hockey). The new Orion Amphitheater has also just been completed attracting a new slew of great musical talents (as well as the smaller more intimate Mars Hall downtown).

>> Forget something? Dollar General is just down the street (1 min walk) from the tiny house and has virtually everything you could need and open 7am-11pm every day

>> Great pizza joint around the corner – DJs pizza. Trust me, you’ll be surprisingly impressed with the thin crust pizza!

>> Great hikes just a few miles away atop Monte Sano State Park with great views of the city as well

Car needed to get around; use Uber if you didn’t bring a vehicle
>> Tesla vehicle charging available on-site! (up to 11kw/60 amps)

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING ALL THE WAY THROUGH PRIOR TO BOOKING.

A lot of blood, sweat and tears (and time and money) continues to go into this luxury tiny house that I spent a full year building & customizing (and continue to tweak ever since). I designed and built the house initially for my wife and I to live in – which we did for nearly 2 years until our first child came along, and our plans changed :). I then decided I could showcase all that tiny living has to offer by making my tiny house available to others to stay in so they too could experience all the joys and uniqueness of tiny house living, and “try it on for size” so-to-speak…

My aim is to provide my guests with an unforgettable Luxury Tiny House experience that they want to share with others about (and possibly help them decide if they want to go tiny in the future as well).

So please provide the utmost care and respect for the house, its components, furniture and outside spaces so that others will continue to also be able to get the same wonderful tiny house experience for years and years to come.

If you are traveling with your dog, only well-behaved and well-trained clean dogs may stay or enter the property; no more than 1 small to medium sized dog.

Be aware that guests WILL be held accountable for any damages, theft, etc that may occur during a stay. Thank you in advance for your care and consideration so that I can continue to provide the best stay experience possible for you and future guests! I appreciate you!

Why the name TaHOW?

A common acronym for tiny houses is THOW (Tiny House on Wheels); also, I moved here to Alabama from Lake Tahoe, California the large, beautiful blue alpine lake in the Sierra Nevadas where I lived for 2 years and traveled to on weekends growing up. So naturally, my large, beautiful (and originally was going to be colored Lake Tahoe BLUE) tiny house on wheels had to be called #TaHOW. (I guess the acronym could also stand for Tiny awesome House on Wheels 🙂

——————————————
To quickly reiterate some important rules (More details in HOUSE RULES section at bottom of listing, below reviews):
**NO Parties, events or gatherings.
**NO smoking or vaping inside or around the tiny house.
——————————————–

CLEANING:

Between guests, I have professional cleaners clean the place, change the linens, and prepare the tiny house for the next guest (and they charge extra for pets, hence the additional pet fee). Therefore there is a mandatory cleaning charge for every stay, whether you’re staying for one night or longer. They arrive at the property at checkout at 11am and finish up by check-in at 3pm. Sorry, early check-ins are not available as this time is needed to make sure the place is clean and ready for you. However, if you just need to drop off your bags, details will be sent you prior to check-in for how and where on the property you can drop off your bags before check-in time (combination lock for 5×10 mini storage unit on property).

***Further details for using the appliances, smart devices and electronics along with the voice commands will be provided inside the House Manual in the airbnb app when you arrive***

Thank you for reading all the way through — We look forward to hosting you!

  • Additional rules information
  • PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH. ONCE YOU CHECK-IN AND ARE ON THE PROPERTY, YOU ARE AGREEING TO EVERYTHING LISTED HERE. **NO SMOKING or Vaping (or any flames or fire at all, besides the oven & stove) in or around the Tiny House (smell lingers, affects those sensitive to smoke, etc). You can smoke in the grassy area near the raised vegetable garden, by the trees or by the car parking ONLY - not on the front or back porch, for example. And please don't litter - pick up any cigarette butts or any other trash. **No Parties or gatherings. This tiny house is by definition small, with only enough space for 4 people. The house, as well as the property and parking, is NOT designed to accommodate any more people than are registered guests through the airbnb app (maximum 4 people). All guests staying on property must be on airbnb reservation. **1 well-trained, well-behaved small to medium sized dog allowed. But dog must never be unattended or left alone, in the house or in the fenced yard. **NO Parking on grassy areas or on pathway - please park in front of metal building at front of property **Do not move inside furniture outside, or around the house, including appliances, electronic devices, rugs, etc. Do not move the firepit to another location either. **Do not open skylight - for emergency only. Sensor will notify me if opened and lights inside will flash. -LADIES: We kindly request that you wipe/wash your make-up off prior to bed. (We provide make-up removal wipes for your convenience.) Make-up stains are a PITB to get out and sometimes do not come out at all even for our professional launders. We replace damaged sheets and pillowcases and will request this replacement cost from you. Our cleaners keep us informed of this daily. Your kind consideration is genuinely appreciated!! -Late check out requests will incur a $50 fee as we will have to request expedited cleaning in the shorter cleaning window before the next guest arrives. Check In is 3PM or later; Check Out is 11AM or earlier. Your lock-code for self check-in and out will only be good inside that timeframe (door locks automatically at 11am and access code deleted) -Please respect the neighbor's property and stay within the fenced area marking the edge of the property and please respect other people who may be on the front of the property or in parking areas -2 propane tanks are supplied for the propane system (hot water heater and stove/oven). There should be more than enough gas for your visit. However if you find the oven/stove flames won't turn on or there is no hot water, you can try turning on the 2nd propane tank under the gooseneck at the front exterior of the tiny house (contact me if this happens and you have questions; again, should be plenty of propane so just in case). -Please consider removing your shoes prior to entering the tiny house and remove any excess dirt/mud to avoid tracking it inside. Any excess dirt/mud (especially in winter) is subject to extra cleaning fees deducted from Security Deposit. -Quiet hours is after 10pm. Please be respectful of neighbors. -Please note that the Cleaning Fee we charge is the cost we incur to clean and change over the unit for the next guests (plus toiletries, laundering and changing linens, etc). We take pride in hiring a local cleaning company and supporting our local economy. Should you feel the cleaning fee is TOO much, PLEASE DO NOT BOOK WITH US; especially if you're considering a one night stay and this fee will impact your review. Thank you for your consideration. -There is an EXTERIOR ONLY security monitoring system on the property. Please rest assured there is NO inside monitoring. (We've had prior issues of guests sneaking unauthorized people onto the property, not respecting the neighbors property, smoking, etc.) We value honesty and appreciate clear and respectful communication and love sharing our one of kind tiny house. Thank you for your consideration for these rules! We hope you enjoy your stay!
